      The final result here is an excellent cake, but I must admit I had misgivings. When my batter was mixed, I had such a thick and unforgiving looking mixture that I doubted the addition of one egg white of meringue would lighten it at all. But after folding, I had a batter which would at least plop into the prepared pan. As for the pan, the 'supremes' from three oranges seemed a bit meagre so I did peel another orange and add about half of that. Also I added a nice hit of grated orange rind to the batter and was very glad that I did. I must say it is a wonderful smelling cake and a very pretty cake with its cocentric rows of carmelized oranges. And it is quite good tasting, though of those who ate it tonight, the majority (4 of 6) felt it was more of a brunch or breakfast sweet than a dessert. I think it will be perfect baked in mini round pans as a breakfast/brunch sweet. I also think I'll have another piece (just a sliver) right now...Thanks, Karen!!
